Beluga™ AI Challenge

Are you a researcher or practitioner in sequential decision making interested in Trustworthy AI and eager to engage with real industrial use cases and connect with distinguished researchers and experts?

Join us from October 2024 to advance Trustworthy AI with real-world industrial applications alongside leading researchers and experts in sequential decision making

Test your skills in our competition inspired by the new Beluga™ Airbus, tackling the strategic placement of aircraft parts during loading and unloading.
Dive into a real-life sequential decision-making challenge that focuses on scalability and explainability.
Prize budget € 5000
All qualified participants will be showcased on TUPLES media channels.
The winners will have the opportunity to collaborate with the research activities of the TUPLES consortium throughout the last 6 months of the project (April-October 2025).

The Competition

The competition will run two challenges:

  • Scalability challenge: solve larger and larger problems
    Metrics: solving time, solution quality
    Flavors: deterministic and probabilistic
  • Explainability challenge: explain infeasibilities or alternative solutions
    Metrics: explanation quality and completeness
    Flavors: deterministic only.

We will provide two ways of solving instances of the use case, through a scikit-decide library:

  •  Simulator: gym-like environment suitable to reinforcement learning solvers
  • Model: PDDL description of the domain suitable to classical planning solvers.

Application need

Planning how and where to store aircraft parts into temporary storage racks under jig & trailer shared resources and uncertainties about production demands and Beluga™ flight.

Business pain points

Complex & combinatorial problem currently planned manually by 2-3 teams, using large rack space buffers to absorb uncertainty.

Technology value

Automated plan generation, anticipating uncertainties to reduce rack space buffers.
